In My Father’s house are many mansions…I go to prepare a place for you.@John 14:2

James L. Nicholson, in Devotional Melodies (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania: A. S. Jenks, 1859).

William U. Butcher (🔊 pdf nwc).

There’s a beautiful land on high,
To its glories I fain would fly,
When by sorrow pressed down,
I long for my crown,
In that beautiful land on high.

Refrain

In that beautiful land I’ll be
From earth and its cares set free;
My Jesus is there, He’s gone to prepare
A place in that land for me.

There’s a beautiful land on high,
And my kindred its bliss enjoy;
Methinks I now see how they’re waiting for me,
In that beautiful land on high.

Refrain

There’s a beautiful land on high,
And though here I oft weep and sigh,
My Jesus hath said that no tears shall be shed
In that beautiful land on high.

Refrain

There’s a beautiful land on high,
Where we never shall say, Goodbye;
When over the river we’re happy for ever
In that beautiful land on high.

Refrain
